EDIT: Probably should have put this under the Rebel Cries of Alderaan Badge, but too late.
There is a Rebel coordinator in Tyrena, Corellia at -5218, -2602. You can try to speak with her, but she tells you to see the Information Officer first.
So go to the Information Officer at -5403, -2751. He will assign you a couple straightforward delivery missions and you should have no problems with them. When finished, he will tell you to speak with the Rebel coordinator again.
She tells you about Dead Eye and Jabba's connection to it. You need to steal it from his people. I have 5000 Jabba faction and -2655 Hutt faction, and did not have any problem speaking with any of the NPC�s in these quests as other people seem to have. I did not have to do any extra Jabba quests in Tatooine or the Hutt quests in Tyrena as the poster below mentioned.
The Rebel coordinator will give you a waypoint to one of the advanced planets. It seems to always be 8190, 8190 no matter which planet you get, so pick the northern starport as your destination. If you ask for a hint, she will tell you (this is where I started to log everything):
"A direct approach might get you killed." Thi-Llolce Itera (a Rebel coordinator) says to Tike. "You'll need to get friendly with them first and then maybe they will trust you and open up. Think like a thug. Thugs are generally greedy, selfish, out for themselves. They like things like drinking, gambling, cheating, carousing; that sort of thing."
When you approach the target NPC, you must answer all the questions correctly or he will aggro on you. If you kill him, you have to go back to the Rebel coordinator to get a new waypoint.
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "Ya talkin' to me? Who sent ya?"
I work for Jabba.
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "Ya do? I can't give ya anything, that I have is mine. But take a rest if ya need it. So what sort of work do you do do?"
Whatever makes me the most money.
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "Now we're talkin'! That's a good philosophy to stick too. The pay's not bad but the kick-backs you get from making Jabba happy, that's what makes it all worth it."
He ends the conversation and you must choose to converse with him again.
"You're a chatty one. " Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike. "Then again, it gets a little lonely bein' out here so it's nice to have someone to chat with. But let's just keep it to small talk okay?"
What do you do for fun?
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "I like gamblin'. Mostly Sabacc ya know? I stay away from those Lugjack machines. Ya may as well be throwin' credits into the Sarlacc Pit playin' that game. That's a game for old women and clueless nobles who can't appreciate the subtleties of a real man's game. You like Sabacc?"
Yes, lots of money to be made at that game.
"Don't you know it!" Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike. "If I had better luck, I'd play it for a livin'. It would probably less risky then this line of work."
Converse with him again.
"So... What do you like to do for fun?" Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike.
I love playing Sabacc.
"You too huh? Well it's great we have something in common! Too bad we don't have cards or we could have us a game. Say, what's you favorite Sabacc variant?" Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike.
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "Wow, you must be good! I can't keep up with all the constant rule changin'."
Converse with him again.
"Say. There's something I need to ask you." Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike.
What is it?
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "I'm in sort of a jam right now. You wouldn't happen to be good at fixin' things would ya? One of the speeders in our caravan has a busted 100-GU anti-gravity unit and it ain't goin' no where until it gets repaired. Jabba's got a lot of money tied up in his shipment so I'm sure he'd pay ya well for your trouble!"
Err... Yeah I'm great at fixing things.
You have been given a grav unit repair kit.
Eiprekhivi Acu says to Tike, "You're a real sport. This is a really important shipment and if it's lost, Jabba will have all our heads. Take this repair kit and get the part fixed. They'll give you an encoded disk that explains their status. Just deliver that disk and I'm sure you'll be paid well. Just don't lsoe it! Even though it is encoded, I'd hate to be you if you let it fall into the wrong hands."
Go to the Contact Caravan Leader Waypoint, which should be nearby
"Are you the one I'm waiting on?" Mooneircho Ina says to Tike. "Transporting this much... umm cargo... over land is dangerous. There are a lot of people that would love to hijack this shipment. With us being broke down; it's only a matter of time before they find us."
Yes. I'm here to make the repairs.
"Thank the stars!" Mooneircho Ina says to Tike. "Here's the part we need to get fixed. Repair that anti-gravity unit and let me know when you're finished. Then we can all get out of here and forget this whole mess ever happened."
You have been given a broken grav unit.
Bring up the radial menu on the repair kit and choose repair. Talk to him again.
You have repaired the 100 GU Graev Unit.
Mooneircho Ina says to Tike, "So is that part repaired yet?"
Yes, here it is.
You have been given a data disk.
You have been awarded 108 points of Jabba faction standing.
"Take this disc." Mooneircho Ina says to Tike. "It gives our new ETA and all the gritty details of this debacle of an operation. Most importantly it explains I'm not at fault. I don't want this breakdown to tarnish my reputation. I'd rather die than to survive a hijacking and have to face Jabba. He'd hold me personally responsible for the loss of the cargo I'm sure! And don't get any ideas about reading that disk. That's classified info and it's all encoded."
Go back to the Rebel coordinator in Tyrena.
Thi-Llolce Itera (a Rebel coordinator) says to Tike, "Excellent work! To be honest, I didn't think you could pull it off. You must have done some real smooth talking! I'll start analyzing the disk right away but it is going to take some time. Whyt don't you go and speak with the Tactical Officer, I believe he has something for you to do. You can find him in the Combat Guild of this city."
Speak to the Tactical Officer at -5453, -2741
Podev (a Tactical Officer) says to Tike, "You're the one the Coordinator sent to help out? I see. Well, if you're here you must be doing something right. Right now our biggest issue is getting a hold of this Alderaanian Flora. Without it Dead Eye is just so much space garbage. We need people to go out and strike at these underworld storehouses and recover as much as we can."
I'd be happy to help.
Your target has been located on Endor.
"Good!" Podev (a Tactical Officer) says to Tike. "Jabba has warehouses of that flora all over the Galaxy. As we find them, we are sending volunteers out to destroy them and confiscate the flora. I've added a waypoint to your datapad for a warehouse we've located close bt. Go destroy it and confiscate any flora you find. I'll reward you for any Alderaanian Flora that you turn in."
Again, you are given a random advanced planet and the waypoint 8190, 8190. You should see 7 NPC's in and around a small building. They can be tough, with HAM ranging from 5000-11000, so make sure you are buffed. After you kill them, enter the building. In the back room is a drum with Alderaan Flora (just one for me). After looting the flora, click on the Data Terminal and set it to Self-Destruct.
You have 30 seconds to exit the building...
Your target has been located on Corellia.
Return to the Tactical Officer in Tyrena.
Podev (a Tactical Officer) says to Tike, �If you haven�t completed the Coordinator�s tasks, you should return to him. If you have, we know of more warehouses you can assault anytime. Either way, you can hand me any Alderaanian Flora you have and I will happily reward you for it."
You have been awarded 50 points of Rebel faction standing.
You receive a Cries of Alderaan Bonus of 5 Rebel faction points.
Drag the flora from your inventory to the Tactical Officer. It looks like you can now do the previous mission as many times as you want, and each time you hand him flora he will award you with faction. Now return to the Rebel coordinator (-5218, -2602).
�Great to see you again,� Thi-Llolce Itera (a Rebel coordinator) says to Tike. �Those disks you acquired have been of great help to our Tactical Officer. He�ll be able to assisn as many assault missions as you can take, but there is something of more importance if you�re up for it.�
I�m up for anything.
�I thought you�d say that. You�ve made a big impression and the Princess has decided to oversee the operation herself. She said the wanted to speak with your personally about it. I�ve added a waypoint to your datapad with the location of the off-world headquarters. I�d head there at once so you don�t keep her waiting.� Thi-Llolce Itera (a Rebel coordinator says to Tike.
I was given the waypoint -49, 86 on Dathomir. Upon arriving, you will see Princess Leia and a few other Rebel NPC�s around a camp.
Princess Leia says to Tike, �It is so nice to meet you. Your bravery so far has generated a bit of conversation in the ranks. Are you ready to do more for the Alliance?�
What�s going on?
�We�re trying to find an alternative to Alderaanian Flora for the Dead Eye process and have a number of research stations working on the problem.� Princess Leia says to Tike. �If we succeed we will be able to continue to make Dead Eye. If we can�t, Dead Eye will be useless once the current stores of Alderaanian Flora are exhausted.�
What is the enemy doing?
�They have discovered our research stations and have been launching constant attacks against them. They are hoping to hinder our research to the point that Dead Eye will fail.� Princess Leia says to Tike.
You are given a nearby waypoint called �Protect Research Facility.� At the waypoint is a large building surrounded by 8 Rebel NPC�s. None of them have the option to converse, so just wait a few minutes. You can expect to wait about five minutes between each of the three waves of Stormtroopers, which will increase in number and difficulty. They had around 10k HAM and conned yellow and red to a Master Pistoleer, and I am estimating the waves came in 4, 6, and 8 ST�s. Since the Rebel NPC�s aren�t much help and most of them will probably die, bring some friends if you can�t kill fast.
I�m not sure exactly how you fail the mission, but the first time I tried all the Rebel NPC�s died during the third wave and the Research Facility disappeared. So you should kill the Stormtroopers as fast as possible before they kill the Rebels. If you fail the mission return to Leia and ask for a new waypoint.
The second time I tried the mission I killed the third wave of Stormtroopers. I waited at the facility for a long time, then headed back to Leia who asked if I had finished my mission yet. Finally, about 15-20 minutes after killing the ST�s, I received a message as I was heading back to the starport.
You have been awarded with 750 points of Rebel faction standing.
You receive a Cries of Alderaan Bonus of 75 Rebel faction points.
CONGRATULATIONS!! You have completed the Cries of Alderaan Story Arc.
[Badge] You have received a new badge! (Event: Cries of Alderaan: Final Chapter)
If you return to Princess Leia, she will only have this to say:
�The Rebellion owes you a debt of thanks. If we are able to finish this research, we will be able to replace the Alderaanian Flora with a suitable alternative and bring Dead Eye to our troops. While the Tactical Officers might have more missions to collect flora, we have asked all of you we can. You have my personal thanks. May the Force be with you.� Princess Leia says.
Other than a badge and faction, there were no other rewards in this series of quests. However, these quests are more fun than most of the others in the game, as a couple of the missions are challenging and are different than the usual deliver, escort, or kill-a-target quests from other theme parks. Hope this helps!
